The brand new 911 Carrera S and 4S derive their power from a 3.0-litre flat-six turbocharged engine. It is capable of making a maximum of 450 PS of power, which then is sent to the wheels via a Porsche's PDK dual-clutch transmission. The S variant supports rear-wheel drive while the 4S features an AWD.
